It will want a minimum of a 10" 3000 stall. . A"2400 stall" is a stock converter that they bent the fins over a bit more to raise the stall.
And it is no the right converter for that cam.
All you need to do is retune what you got. It runs like crap cause of the set up.
What converter do you got in it now?

If you are dead set on using a mild 2400 stall use one of the cams I listed. They are just right.
They make great street power. A good match for a 327 with a mild stall and 4.10's
strong to 5500+rpm and the torque is right where you want it.

Both the cams you got and the Nastalgia + cam you like need a 10" 3000+ stall.
The will not idle correctly in gear with a "2400 stall" and the power comes on at 3000+rpm, on both.

Any cam that has 229 @ .050" intake duration needs a 10" 3000 stall. even more in a 327.
This cam will be lazy with a stock or near stock converter especially in a 327.
It really wants a 3500 stall converter.
